BODY LANGUAGE
-------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION
Body language is the non-verbal communication of the human beings, both conscious and unconscious. It is the way we judge other people and the way they judge us. 93% of the human communication is through body language, and just 7% through the words themselves. -------------------------------------------------

THEORY
Presentation & Meetings:
People need a set of core skills: conscious control of voice and body language, a logical structure, crystal clear key messages and a wide range of techniques to engage their audience. If you can use these skills the result will be: keeping your audience attention, making them interested in listening and leave them with a concrete set of clear messages. Business Environment:

While the world is moving to telework and telecommuting and increasingly businesses are online, there are many occasions where we need to master our body language, for example in meetings with team members, clients, bosses and especially in job interviews. A good use of nonverbal communication will facilitate our message and get the attention of the other party, helping us succeed and providing a great impression. -------------------------------------------------
